If you like nachos, you might want to try this recipe in honor of National BBQ Month.
“I know you’ve had fried tortilla chips with cheese and hot peppers. And I know you’ve had stuffed potato skins,” writes James Beard Award-winning pitmaster Rodney Scott, in “Rodney Scott’s World of BBQ: Every Day Is a Good Day : A Cookbook,” which was published in 2021. “But trust me, pigskin nachos are another level. These are as rich as can be, but worth every calorie.”

1. Place a rack in the center of the oven and preheat the oven to 425°F.

3. Remove from oven and top with sauce, bacon bits, spring onions and sour cream. Serve hot.
For Kathy’s Sweet Sauce:
Makes 2 ½ cups
Preparation time: 5 minutes
Cooking time: 10 minutes
2 cups of ketchup
½ cup apple cider vinegar
4 ½ tablespoons granulated sugar
2 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon brown sugar

In a medium saucepan, combine the ketchup, vinegar, both sugars, the hot sauce, black pepper, salt, mustard powder, pepper flakes, and chili powder. Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently to prevent the sauce from sticking to the bottom of the pan, until the sugars have melted and the sauce is smooth, about 10 minutes. Let the sauce cool to room temperature and store in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
